News | WFOX

A teen accused of killing his mother will get a new hearing in September.

It’s been nearly a year since police believe Mitchell Daughtry murdered his mom in her Arlington home.

On Wednesday, Daughtry’s lawyer asked for more time to prepare his case.

Police say Daughtry stabbed his mother, Pamela Daughtry, before stealing the family car and driving to South Florida where police found him in a parking lot in Sunny Isles Beach near Miami

Police say Daughtry was suicidal and angry. Investigators say they found text messages on Daughtry's phone indicating he may have killed his mother

On Wednesday, the teen appeared in court shackled wearing a blue polo and khaki pants. His lawyer spoke for him and told the judge he still needs to gather more discovery for the case.

Daughtry is expected to be back in court again September 20.
